Dear GOP: 60 million Hillary voters will not be silenced

The past 48 hours have been a wake up call for many Americans.

The long view is never easy, but at a moment like this we have to keep in mind that the road to justice is never linear. There are setbacks (and this is a big one), but knowing that there are more than 60 million fellow Americans standing with us should give us strength as we fight for the ideals of fairness and equality for all.

As we embark on this treacherous journey, we can both defend our principles and exemplify them: Decency, dignity, compassion, justice for all.

Onward…
